Repairs will include removing the worn top layer of pavement from travel lanes and shoulders, repairing the base asphalt, improving drainage and installing new a new asphalt surface.

Commuters should expect roadway repairs on sections of the Long Island Expressway, Northern State Parkway, Meadowbrook Parkway and Routes 24, 25 and 878.
